Target Markets & Applications

The automotive industry is constantly evolving, and with it comes a growing need for advanced connectivity solutions. Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) connectors have become essential components in the automotive industry, transforming the way electronic systems are incorporated into vehicles. As automotive technology continues to advance, FPC connectors play a critical role in enabling innovative features and improving overall performance.

Amphenol's FlexLock™ FPC-to-Board and Flex-to-Wire connectors are introduced to redefine automotive connector standards. With a focus on compactness, reliability, and performance, FlexLock™ sets a new benchmark for flexible circuit connectors in automotive applications.

FlexLock™ connectors are precisely engineered to comply with industry standards such as USCAR-T2V2 and LV-214 S3, ensuring unparalleled quality and reliability. Whether it's board-to-board, flex-to-board, or flex-to-wire connections, they offer versatile solutions to suit a wide range of automotive applications. Featuring a nominal current carrying capacity of 2A per contact, these connectors are capable of supporting high-power applications while maintaining optimal signal integrity. The re-flow tin plating feature reduces mating and unmating force, guaranteeing smooth and efficient connections.

The benefits of these flexible circuit connectors extend beyond traditional connector functionalities. Available in 2.54mm and 3.20mm pitches, they cater to various types of automotive applications ranging from ADAS, car computing, and infotainment to advanced camera systems, monitors, navigation, radar, and LiDAR. They also find use in battery management systems within electric vehicles (EV). From 10 to 36 positions in double-row configurations to 4 to 15 positions in single-row through hole terminations, these automotive-grade connector system offers design flexibility.

Additionally, terminal position assurance (TPA) ensures proper terminal insertion, retention, and mating, enhancing overall reliability. This is especially beneficial for automotive applications, as it ensures a secure connection under conditions like vibration, temperature variations, and exposure to other harsh environmental factors. Hold-down features increase PCB grip force, while Connector Positioning Assurance (CPA) guarantees that connectors are properly mated and locked together, further enhancing system robustness.

At Amphenol, we are committed to delivering high-performance interconnect solutions tailored to meet unique customer demands. Get in touch with us to learn more about FlexLock™ and other FPC Connectors that suit your design requirements.
